    I can't wait to see a test match tbh. Australia's first series minus Warne and McGrath should be a cracker.

    Relevancy? Little IMO.

    'Fraid not. I caught about 40 minutes of Pakistan v. Bangladesh and about 15 minutes of a couple of other games, and what I saw didn't make me want to watch more - players trying ugly hoick shots, dismissals that were terrible, dancing girls (little tip - no sport that is any good requires cheerleaders to keep the crowd excited), and players being utterly bereft of any decision making prerogative by the format - they have no option about how they go about the game - hence its hard to get excited about them going the tonk because its not a choice/risk like it is in Tests or even ODIs, its a necessity. It like the difference between how exciting it is when a punch or two are thrown in the footy compared to in a boxing match - less is more, especially in a context where it is somewhat unexpected and has consequences attached.

    Well, you have to give the format and tournament a fair chance IMO. If you only catch a few minutes of games then you won't be able to appreciate the contest between the teams, no offence.

    None taken. No doubt at some stage I'll sit through a match (I have sat through the entire Aus vs NZ and Aus vs SA games last year and the year before, although they weren't being taken very seriously by the players). But the little I've seen doesn't fill me with the desire to make an effort to do so.

    TBH, from the stern talkings-to I've given the kid I got the impression that he was only a fake member ITFP really. He basically said to me that he liked pretty much any cricket (especially if India are winning, obviously) and that he just liked Twenty20 less than the other 2 formats, which is not really what the T2IBS is about.
